Julia R. Farrell is a pediatric occupational therapist who has been in practice since 1997. The last 8 years of her practice, she has focused on helping children with feeding and swallowing disorders. Julia uses a developmental approach with children to both help them maximize their independence with feeding as well as maximize their active participation in meal time.
Julia is a firm believer in coaching parents how to use the tools and techniques that she uses to demystify the therapy process and provide parents with realistic tools to use during meal times at home. Her goal is for you and your child to NOT need her!
I'm happy to arrange consultations with daycares and schools. I also encourage consultations with your child's medical professionals.
Home based feeding evaluations within San Francisco city limits.
It takes a village to raise any child, but a child with feeding issues can bring a host of other considerations. I am happy to set up group sessions and classes for the education of parents and others involved in your child's care.
